Network Manager Electric editions

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What’s changing with Network Manager Electric?

As electric grid requirements grow increasingly competitive and complex, network model management has become more important than ever. We understand that there are diverse utilities who need this solution to operate their grids. They differ in the scope of their networks, the number of users, available IT resources, maturity of their processes, and budgets. To support this diversity, we have created three editions of Network Manager Electric: Insight, Professional, and Enterprise.

Flexibility and usability are hallmarks of all IQGeo products, and that will continue to be one of our primary focuses as customers can now choose the edition of Network Manager Electric that is right for their network model management needs

What are the differences in each edition?

  1. The Insight edition gives electric utilities a single, geospatially based, network model management solution that enables them to document, update, manage, and share their network asset data across the organization at a cost-effective price point. It is intended for organizations who want to accurately document their network now and into the future with a packaged solution based on industry best practices. The Insight edition can be deployed immediately, without the need for an IT team.
  2. The Professional edition delivers the same network model management solution and fast deployment as the Insight edition, but also provides the ability to configure the product, such as creating new network model features and workflow forms. The Professional edition is configurable, without the need for software programming.   
  3. The Enterprise edition includes all the network model management capabilities within Professional, and also enables the utility to extend and customize the functionality of the solution to account for the greater number of systems, processes, and user requirements found in large-scale network deployments. The Enterprise edition allows operators to develop customized software to meet advanced workflow and integration requirements.

Who is each edition intended for?

  1. The Insight edition is designed for smaller electric grids and is best suited for smaller municipal and cooperative utilities who are looking for a network model management solution  
  2. The Professional edition is designed for electric grids and is intended for operators whose networks are broader in scope and want to build and define digital processes to deploy and manage their networks without code development. The Professional edition is best suited for mid-size utilities. 
  3. The Enterprise edition is intended for large electric utilities who want to extend the solution to support additional innovative workflows that require integration that can only be met with custom software development, due to the complex and specialized nature of their existing systems and processes. 

Can I move up from Insight edition to Professional or Enterprise?

Yes, this is why we created three editions. If you discover that you need more functionality and new workflows to more effectively manage your network, we have a seamless path to enhance and evolve your deployment. 

Can I purchase additional capabilities as needed?

Yes, there are add-on capabilities, including an offline mobile app, available for purchase with every edition. For Professional and Enterprise, you may also purchase additional IQGeo Adaptive Grid applications, extended software support, and extended cloud hosting options.

Can I add additional users after my initial purchase?

Yes, you can add users at any time, independent of the Network Manager Electric edition you’ve chosen. 

Can I use Network Manager Electric in the field with any edition?

Yes, every edition includes standard field mobility, which offers online, browser-based field mobility. If you also require offline field mobility, you can purchase the field mobile app with any of the editions.

What’s the difference between field mobility and offline field mobility?

Field mobility is included in each edition and gives users online, browser-based field mobility. Offline field mobility is app-based for the organizations who need offline field mobility to support rural geographies or during disaster response when Internet connectivity is not available. The offline version is available for an additional cost with each edition.
